Stephen Baker · In-Between Days

We’re huge fans of local artist Stephen Baker, and were super chuffed to host an exhibition with him (along with another local favourite, Sarah Kelk) earlier in the year.

We’re blown away by Stephen’s latest body of work, which forms an exhibition entitled ‘IN-BETWEEN DAYS’ opening in Melbourne this week!

Melbourne artist Stephen Baker is a quiet achiever. Though totally chill in person, Stephen is an ambitious and focussed creative. He’s also impressively prolific – having already participated in a number of group shows this year, this week he opens a new solo exhibition, entitled ‘IN-BETWEEN DAYS’.

Using a restrained palette and working on a larger scale than usual, these latest works represent a turning point in Stephen’s practice. Though rendered in his distinctive geometric style, the paintings are more expressive and emotive than we’ve seen from Stephen before. The human form is a central theme – male and female bodies lounge and interact within an imagined futuristic setting.

For Stephen, this body of work is a exploration of solitude and human behaviour. ‘In-between days define us’ explains Stephen. ‘Through this series of paintings, I outline a simple proposition: that we only truly come to understand ourselves when we’re on our own, with nothing much to do.’

In-between days are the days when you wake up with no plans and nothing much to do. Sometimes you’re happy to be directionless, mind wandering, sails soft against the breeze. Sometimes your mind is awash with doubts and fears, old habits and new resolutions” – Stephen Baker
